PROPOSED Start Dates for 20-21 School Year:

At last night’s Board of Education Meeting WCPSS staff proposed recommended calendars for the 2020 – 2021 school year based on our current COVID situation and the need for further guidance on legislated precautionary matters.  The proposal for multi-track year-round schools delayed start dates by a few weeks and lengthen the instructional day by 15 minutes.  The proposed start dates are:

Track 1, 2 and 3 – August 3

Track 4 – August 17

The BOE will vote on this proposal on June 2 after which we will obtain further information regarding track-out dates, etc. 

 

A message from Mr. Brodnick:

Hey Students! I have some exciting news for you about Field Day! In the coming week, please be on the lookout for your Physical Education Virtual Field Day in your assignments in google classroom that you can perform at home.  There will be links that demonstrate what you need to do to participate in the Virtual Field Day!  This Field Day will allow you to choose what activity you can do and explain what materials you can use from home to do it.  I am looking forward to seeing some of the cool things you do during your event at home!

In observance of Memorial Day, food services will be canceled on Monday, May 25. Extra food will be distributed on Friday, May 22 for students and families for the holiday weekend. Most weekend food service sites will still operate on a normal schedule Memorial Day Weekend.
